Glasgow Jazz Festival: Black Umfolosi

About Glasgow Jazz Festival: Black Umfolosi

Their performances are energy driven and completely engaging, mixing a great gentleness of spirit and song with an exuberance in dance. Their trademark harmonies mixed with intricate rhythms, clicking and clapping are highlighted during their brilliantly choreographed shows with a full range of movements from subtle to vibrant stomping and leaping! Their famous Gumboot Dances showcase the traditional styles and rituals of the South African mining regions and are a particular crowd pleaser.

The group formed in 1982 in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, naming themselves after the Umfolozi Omnyama River –an area to which their ancestors can be traced to.

Arguably Zimbabwe’s greatest ambassadors, the group have toured the UK many times building up a lasting relationship with venues and their fans.

The group have a natural ability to communicate passion and feeling in their spectacular performances that thrill audiences worldwide.
